Some of the reasons behind Verizon's delay is...

....with the Wireless Sync in mind, plus other features that Verizon wanted implemented with the Treo 600. The contract discount prices only apply to new accounts, but don't expect to waive the activation fee with these phones, though.

On other Treo news, Nextel is the only major carrier left out on the cold.

Billing Question

Currently, I have a T3 which I connect to a Verizon Moto 270c via Bluetooth. I am billed for my connection time to my Earthlink dial-up account out of my minutes, but there is no data fee.

I see at Verizon's site that there are optional data plans listed with the Treo. Does that mean that with a Verizon Treo I could not dial into my Earthlink account to check mail like I currently unless I subscribe to the data plan?

Instead of using your Earthlink account for IP service try dialing #777 with username and passwd of 'qnc'.

This is Verizon's lower speed IP service and will probably be a lot more pleasant and cheaper than what you're using now.

Excellent! This connects so much faster than doing it via Earthlink. Thanks!!!

One question: are minutes connected through #777 billed as just minutes off my plan?

So then the ultimate question is can you use #777 from a Treo instead of buying a Verizon data plan?

Well, yeah - at 14.4K. That's what you get using the qnc login. NationalAccess is a different login.

At one time you could get "auto-provisioning" where NA minutes would just deduct as usual, but I don't know what the status of that is now. I still have it but I'm not sure if you could get it now or with a Treo.

21MB Useable On-Handheld Memory for VZW

I need to point out a major discrepancy for those who are looking for CDMA Treos that the Verizon Wireless Version of the Treo will only allow memory usage up wo 21MB because Verizon, during the approval process, wanted PalmOne to "block" 11MB for the system to use. Does that ring a bell?
